Intended as a recreation of the very first sets of Strat pickups, Monty’s ’54 Strat package is modelled from original pickups found on incredible, vintage guitars. This variant features a Parchment finish.
Mid 50’s Influence
Monty’s ’54 set is heavily influenced by excellent mid '50s Strat pickups. Pure clarity, with dynamic harmonic content remains ever present throughout the vintage tone. The mid-range adds a thickness that pairs nicely with the snappy response of a maple fretboard especially.
Magnets were meticulously produced as recreations of the classic ’54 magnet stagger – further reinforcing the old-school feel.
Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Originals
Our sonic recreations of real vintage pickups, the Originals series is the bread and butter of Monty’s pickup universe. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to see, repair and play countless examples of basically every vintage pickup imaginable. While not every old pickup is particularly good (in fact, we’ve seen some absolute shockers in our time), the best of them are simply divine. We’ve worked out what it is that makes these tonal titans tick and distilled their essence into each and every one of our originals series pickups. If you’re after pure vintage tone, these are the pickups for you.
